1 roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
¼ c. all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
Miniature chocolate chips
Candy-coated chocolate candies
Small tube of red frosting


Preheat the oven to 350°. Place cookie dough in a large mixing bowl, breaking dough into large chunks sprinkled with flour. Knead the flour into the dough until no streaks of flour are visible. Divide in half and place the dough in the freezer for 10 minutes. Remove dough from freezer and shape it into 1½-inch balls. Roll each ball into a 10-inch rope, then place the ropes onto an ungreased baking sheet. Beginning with the top of each rope, coil the dough to form a small spiral for each snowman’s head. Starting at the other end of the ropes, coil a larger spiral for the body. The end result should look like one small ball attached to a larger ball. With a sharp knife, cut gumdrops into the shape of hats. Place the hats on the snowmen’s heads. Make eyes and noses from the chocolate chips and buttons from the chocolate candies. Make tiny mouths from the red frosting. Space the cookies on the baking sheets and freeze for about 10 minutes. Then bake the cookies for up to 12 minutes, or until golden.
